AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- Richmond County bus drivers are holding a town hall Thursday night to discuss bus safety and maintenance issues, but the Richmond County School System stands behind the safety of their bus system.

Just hours before the bus drivers' scheduled town hall meeting, Richmond County School System posted a statement on their Facebook page claiming to have the "truth" about the bus system.

This town hall meeting comes after we found ispection reports on more than 200 Richmond County school buses that showed at least three-quarters of them have some kind of problem.

That meeting is set for 7 p.m. at Minnick Park.
